Welcome to CosFriday with Jaclynmay Cosplay!


Welcome to CosFriday! This week’s guest is an accomplished seamstress and foamsmith, who loves nothing more than bringing her favourite characters to life.  Meet Jaclynmay Cosplay!

What’s your name & how old are you? I’m Jaclyn and I’m 22!

How long have you been cosplaying? Just over three and a half years. 

What inspired you to start cosplaying? I moved from Sydney to Perth and was in a dark place mentally. I remember one of my friends mentioning cosplay and decided to give it a go! Thus my first cosplay was made and I became part of an amazing community!

What was your First Cosplay? The Winter Soldier 🙂

What is your most recent cosplay? Kirishima from BNHA! (My Hero Academia)

What cosplays are you currently working on? I am working on a few! I am remaking Kirishima, and working on a Sailor Scout version of him. I’m also working on Illidan from WoW and Todoroki and Kaminari from BNHA. My big cosplay for next year is Mephala from Elder Scrolls, and I’ll be entering her into Odyssey.

Who are your favourite cosplayers in the community? Omg I have so many! Kamui Cosplay Jessica Nigri @meliiox @brie_kaye_cosplay @ladykalinya @killa_kitty @cosplay_chris @heyitsshaycos That’s just to name a few! I have so many tho haha

Who else do you want to cosplay? Wow! Um! I have a list that could go around the world 10 times haha But Lilith from Diablo IV is up there for sure! As well as Jaina Proudmoore from WoW and Mannimarco from ESO!

Tell us an odd fact about yourself! I’m ambidextrous! Which makes crafting super interesting as I am dominantly right handed but prefer to do some things with my left.
